Veterinarians' reports.

(1) Every veterinarian who treats or administers a procedure to a racehorse at any location under the jurisdiction of the commission must, on a form approved by the commission, report all treatments and procedures to an official veterinarian. The report must include the following:
(a) The name of the horse;
(b) The name of any medication, drug, or substance administered or prescribed;
(c) The procedure administered;
(d) The name of the trainer;
(e) The date and time of treatment; and
(f) Any other information required by the official veterinarian.
(2) The practicing veterinarian must sign and file the report with an official veterinarian within forty-eight hours of treatment.
If a horse is entered to run in a race and the treatment occurs within forty-eight hours of post time of the race for which the horse is entered, the report must be filed by 10:00 a.m. the morning of the race, with the exception of the furosemide administration as directed in WAC 260-70-650.
(3) A timely and accurate treatment report may be considered by the stewards or the commission as a mitigating factor when determining the penalty for violation of these rules.
